Just a quick post from me since I need to be getting in bed in just a minute here. My alarm goes off in 6 hours for work tomorrow. Something tells me Monday might be a long day! lol If I took this picture tomorrow after work, I’d probably need some wrinkle filler to fill in the bags under my eyes! No complaints though, I’ll take the 4 hours of overtime. Every little bit adds up when you’re trying to pay the bills! Have a good rest of your Sunday everyone, I’m off to bed!

Happy Pi Day! I didn’t have any. Pie, that is. I had a rather productive weekend though. I went grocery shopping and got food for the week plus food for lunches at work. I bought 6 new shirts to wear since a lot of mine are rather ratty looking. And I bought Madelyn’s birthday present since she turns ONE next week!
After I finished spending all my money, I came home and put everything away and then started cleaning. The living room is still rather cluttered, but the rest of my apartment looks nice!
Oh! And back in the realm of spending money… I finally purchased renter’s insurance! Just shy of four years after I started renting this apartment lol I emptied one of my ING accounts to pay for the year in full in order to avoid any fees. THEN I really stopped spending all my money!
Now I’m just trying to get myself in bed. It’s difficult because it’s definitely past my bedtime, but it doesn’t feel like it because it’s “really” only 8pm and not 9pm. I hate Daylight Savings Time. Curse Mitch Daniels, the dip machine, and his switching Indiana onto DST… I rather liked being one of the only holdouts and not having to change my clocks twice a year. This time of year, we used to be on central time, and now we’re on Eastern time year round. It stays light WAAAAY too late in the middle of the summer, we’re too far west to be in this timezone. But I digress. I could whine about DST forever. In the meantime, I’m going to try and go to bed now because the feelings of jetlag will be bad enough tomorrow without me staying up way too late.
One night last week, I was too lazy to cook (ha! big surprise, right?) so I swung through the Taco Bell drive thru closest to my house. I got dinner, but I also figured out exactly why I generally prefer to pay with my debit card. I handed her a $20 bill, and among the change I got back, I received this:
Now. Tell me exactly who I am supposed to foist this off on now? That dollar bill is about as useful to me as a motorcycle accident attorney would be right now. As in, not at all. Seriously. I would imagine that if I tried to give them BACK their half a dollar bill, they probably wouldn’t accept it.
I had a pretty crazy week… lots of things changing at work this week, super busy. Then I picked up an extra shift this weekend. Third shift. Man, I am so not used to that anymore! I tried to take a nap yesterday afternoon, but it didn’t work so well. I came home and slept for about 3 hours this morning, but I’ve been up since then.
Laundry kept me busy for a few hours, but now I’m watching Where All the Wild Things Are and dreaming of heated mattress pads. Okay, maybe not, but I am watching the movie, and all I’m trying to do at this point is stay up until a more appropriate bed time! I could totally go to bed right now, but I don’t want to be awake at 3 or 4 in the morning either.
Am I rambling? I feel like I’m rambling. I also feel like there isn’t a coherent thought in my head. Isn’t that the perfect time to blog?! LOL
